This is one of the reasons I write so much, Froggie. I look for opportunities to share the personal stuff, rather than babbling about abstractions.
I'll tell you how I did
spend my New Years Eve. I've known my core group of friends for over 30 years now. One got married to a wonderful person, and the two of them have become the focal point for most of our gatherings.
I spent friday night and most of saturday at Eric and Jen's house. We had lots hats, a keg of Sierra Nevada pale ale, a booze luge (and a motley assortment of libations to go with it), fireworks, a raffle, a fresh ham dinner, music of all sorts (some performed live by our jazz band), and lots of memories - some documented (fortunately and unfortunately) by video.
Even as we spend less and less time with each other because life pushes us that way, I swear we're growing closer and closer in spite of it. It was a great time.
It's sunday morning, and I'm still
a little groggy...
Happy New Year to you and your family, Dale!
EDIT: I've spent several New Years doing nothing. To be honest, it didn't bother me too much.
